Joe, thank you very much for posting my pic.
The layout is 4'-5" x 3'-0" and I used Aristocraft 15" radius track. My Bachmann Climax and 45 ton diesel locomotives operate alright on the tight curves.  I still need to do scenery and track ballasting.
Regards,
Chuck

Chuck,

The mini layout looks great!  Just shows what you can do in a small space in Large scale!!! Cool

Thanks for your comments.
How are you doing with your indoor layout?

Chuck,
You are most welcome.  I have been very lazy about getting pictures, but I will take some and post them soon.  I find that I am very poor at making scenery though.  I have been making  industry flats out of old outdoor buildings, and have had some success with that.  I also took a photo of the local refinery here in Denver and blew it up and had Office Depot print it out for me. I pasted it on the wall behind my tank car siding and it looks pretty good.  After all my outdoor layouts I am really liking the indoor layout overall.  Right now I have my more modern equipment on the layout, but next fall I will switch back to steam for awhile.  It has been a challenge to do buildings and scenery that cover both era's, but I am trying.

As for your layout I am thinking that the Davenport or the Porter would look great on it as well.

All the best,

Bill
